Egypt Administrative Prosecution Not to Oversee Constitution Referendum

Egypt's administrative prosecution announced on Wednesday that it will not participate in monitoring the December 15 referendum on the draft constitution until President Mohamed Mursi annuls a decree he issued on November 22.

In a press conference on Wednesday, a member of the judicial body urged Mursi to rescind his decree, adding that its members will be in permanent session until the issue is resolved.
